Israeli Forces Seize Garbage Truck, Tractor in Hebron Town

HEBRON, February 19, 2015 (WAFA) – Israeli forces seized on Wednesday evening a waste collection vehicle and tractor belonging to Yatta town to the south of Hebron, said a local activist.

Coordinator of the Popular Committees against Wall and Settlement Ratib Jabour said that the truck and tractor belong to Yatta municipality and were seized by Israeli soldiers while moving waste to a landfill to the east of the town.

Both vehicles were retained in the military base of Etzion, south of Bethlehem.

Jabour condemned Israeli practices targeting Palestinian property, in this case trucks that are necessary for daily garbage disposal, urging international human rights organizations to intervene and help return the vehicles, to which the town has no alternative.
